Nail of the Week....Zoya Midori

Another new section to my blog is going to be the Nail of the Week section.  I have made a few nail posts in the past, but I want for you to be able to find them all in one place.  I used to be scared of colors that were considered "loud" or unconventional.  I stuck to the nudes, neutrals and basic reds and pinks.  The ladies of a forum that I frequent got me out of that quick fast and in a hurry.  

My collection of 7 or 8 polishes expodentially multiplied.  I soon realized that my "Product Junkie" mentality was taking over where this was concerned.  So a year and over BLEEP (ah...thought I was going to tell you huh??) bottles later, I decided that I had every color known to man, so I stopped my nail polish collecting.  I have decided to use this blog to showcase my polishes...and to guarantee that I will actually wear them. 

Back to the polish at on to find out more about it.

Inspired By...These Shoes of Mine

Many times, when I am stuck for a new color combination, I look to things around me for inspiration.  It can be anything, a flower found in nature, the stripes of a new shirt or even a simple pair of shoes.

I am creating a new segment for my blog called Inspired By....  Here I will post looks that are inspired by the things that are around me...even a simple pair of shoes.  Hope you like what you are see and are inspired by the things that surround you.  Keep reading for the look I created inspired by these shoes of mine.......

Bare Escentuals: Tahitian Sun

I have been looking back through my online photo albums and found these pictures.  I did this look during the Winter, but it is something that can be worn now; a nice neutral look for a hot Summer day.  In fact, I was thinking of Summer when I did this one. 

If I was going to do it as a Summer look, I would choose a lighter lip combination and maybe a more colorful liner. 

Hope you like it.  More pics and what I did after the break....

Smoky Blues

Blues scare me.  I does not matter if they are light, bright electric blues or dark smoky blues.  If it has the word "blue" in scares me.  I decided to do a smoky eye look with some blues.  This turned out more monochromatic that I imagined when I had the colors next to each other, but I like it nonetheless.  What I did and more pics after the break....

Bare Escentuals: Girlfriend Michelle, Gigi, Angel

Here is a copycat look that I stole from Becky at  I have to admit that it scared me to death, but I decided to go for it.  I thought these colors would look out of place on my skin tone, but I really like how it turned out.  Hope you all like it.  Products used and what I did after the break...
